LostArtPress on InstagramAt the Kentucky Folk Art Center (again) with @burnheartmade checking some curves of Chester Cornett’s Fat Man Rocker. And buying walnut for upcoming commissions.I am amazed at how quickly the @benchcrafted Hi-Vise has become my friend. #neversponsoredPhoto Courtesy of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston This little joined stool is a partial survivor from the 17th century. The turnings, the moulding profiles on the aprons and stretchers, and the chisel-chopped dentil decoration all indicate a strong relationship between this stool and numerous other furniture pieces from the entire 17th century in Plymouth Colony. The frame, although refinished long ago, is intact and original. The seat/top board is an early replacement, having been pictured in Wallace Nutting’s books in the 1920s in essentially the same condition. The stool originally had turned feet below the stretchers, so adding perhaps 3" or 4" more to its height. There is very little “rake” or splay to the side frames of this stool. Some of the rails on this stool are riven so slim that the tenons are “scant” in places. This means that the tenons are not necessarily full thickness throughout. This stool is the first place we noted the inner chamfer on the stiles. It occurs throughout almost all other Plymouth Colony joined chairs and tables as well. — from “Make a Joint Stool from a Tree” by Jennie Alexander and Peter Follansbee #Make_a_Joint_Stool_from_a_Tree

The best words of advice I’ve heard sound simple until you give them some thought. Here are three things to consider. “Good beekeepers have to figure some things out for themselves.” This was a simple statement made by a beekeeper … Continue reading
It’s easy to think that there aren’t any secrets left in woodworking. But I don’t think that’s true. While a lot of the basic hand and machine skills are widely discussed and disseminated (thank you, Internet), a good deal of … Continue reading
Many woodworkers struggle when designing their own mouldings, and that’s because they haven’t studied enough of the most common forms. Imagine trying to build a chest of drawers if you had only seen a few of them. To become fully … Continue reading
Despite word from Tibet from my milk paint supplier that Agnes the yak was busy assembling her hope chest and flirting shamelessly with a certain strapping young specimen of yakhood, I decided that I needed to take the bull by … Continue reading
